    And since I'm on this nonsensical rant, why does everyone use the word 'basically' so much nowadays? Basically, it drives me nuts!

    Just saw a photo from a bookstore that happened to include "The Fallen" by David Baldacci (I do not read Baldacci and haven't read The Fallen). It grabbed my attention because the cover design immediately called that of Needful Things (original US hardcover) to mind - perhaps others might agree.

    I have a nice news to share: after ten years running the bookstore with my two friends, we decided to take the next step. We signed up as publisher, bought the rights of The Dark Tower: A Complete Concordance and we'll be publishing it as a limited edition in Spanish, signed by Robin Furth and with cover artwork by Michael Whelan.

    Here's the cover:



    And the website of the announcement (it's in Spanish):

    http://ediciones.restaurantdelamente.com/

    First step. Let's see where this take us.
    Wanted list:
    The girl who loved tom gordon ARC with King's letter
    The Plant #3 Unsigned.

    I'm a couple of months away from finishing the fourth year of my studies - only three more to go...

    (I'm enjoying it very much but man, the combination of being 43-going-on-44, having a four year old running around, being married, working, AND studying/practicing about 20-25 hours a week is starting to drain my energy a bit...)

    Nice! Good luck to you!

    I might need a copy of this. It can go next to my copy of Todo Sobre Stephen King.

    No school or training for me but my work, wife, and 9 month old son who just learned how to scream helps me relate a little.

    Ha, ha. If you think you have little energy now, just wait a few years. I envy you.
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.
